the work that the young america's foundation does is for you guys on campus, but even more importantly for your liberal compatriots on campus. you know, these are the guys and girls who have been thoroughly indoctrinated by their leftist professors or their teachers in high school that by the time they get the college they are committed liberals but if they are not they have to go through that weeklong freshman indoctrination program, you know what i'm talking about were they all teach a sort of atrocious things. don't fall for it, okay? so that is why we are dean until doing here is so incredibly important. did you know that last year a rock obama was on 100 college campuses? over 100 college campuses. do you think that the left recognizes the importance of getting young people on their side? i think 100 campuses means they understand the importance of getting the left on their side. his plan to socialized medicine and pretty much every private sector of our economy, he knows in order for that plan to succeed he has to get buy-in from you guys. for it to succeed to the law and. he jus

and get something done. >> canada is actually america's largest trading partner. what about the controversy over the buy american provision. >> this is coming to a head. not only hurting canada but hurting american. let me explain the canadian hurt first. under the stim tim bill all iron and teal and marfed goods have to be bought in america. meaning purchased there. that shuts out the canadians. it is shutting out some u.s. businesses who can't figure out if components that they have built elsewhere can be used in the self same infrastructure projects. canadian business representatives and u.s. business representatives are appealing to the white house to do something about the buy america. that will not happen. both countries are stuck and people are losing jobs on both sides of the border. major garrett in mexico. live from guadalajara. >> judging by recent events. the issue is striking a nerve with the american people. we have heard simple discussion there is also this. . >> it is coming out of my paycheck? >> not all civil. lawmakers holding town hall meetings to talk he

deal with the american people where old people in america pay for the education of young people in america, through the tax base, and young people in america pay for the health care of old people in america through the tax base. we have a government medicare obviously for senior citizens. as long as that's sort of balanced, nobody gets too worked up. but we're at a point now where the costs of providing health care is exploding, and i wonder whether we're starting to set up a real generational divide here between the demands and politics of seniors and their expectations from national health care or medicare, and the young people of this country who are looking at an increasing tab for all of these things. >> sure. well yes. it was bound to happen. dare say inevitable. because the seniors, these are the baby boomers. the generation, our generation, my generation, coming up behind them, there are fewer of us to pay that huge exploding health care bill that's coming. health care, medicare, medicaid, social security, and all of these things so there are fewer of us, fewer young peo

don't you think president obama has succeeded in utterly altering the view of america and people's minds that he has brought credibility to american democracy which probably did not exist before? >> a very interesting question because it goes back literally to the period when barack obama started thinking seriously about running which is late summer 2006 he took a trip to africa and on that trip he came back with a belief, a feeling that the election of and african american, him in particular, would have an instant affect how the world saw the country. even if there was not an important change of policy which she was still advocating, that act alone would say something about america that would make the world look differently and that has been the case. if you look at a recent study that looks at the approval ratings of obama it is unbelievable. there is that potential for him out there. i think the problem or challenge for him is it is one thing to begin to make the old bridge to talk about a different kind of america or engagement with the world under president bush but as you g
